Al Qaeda had planned major attacks in Pakistan: CIA




By IANS,

Islamabad : Al Qaeda had planned to carry out major attacks in Pakistan, show documents that US Marine commandos took away from the residence of Osama bin Laden, a media report said Friday.

The CIA, based on documents seized by US Navy SEALs during the raid on Osama bin Laden's hideout in Abbottabad in May last year, has shared intelligence with Pakistan that suggests Al Qaeda planned to carry out major strikes inside Pakistan, reported Dawn.

Before Osama was gunned down, the Al Qaeda chief along with Ayman Al-Zawahiri, who took over as Al Qaeda chief in June 2011, and other senior leaders had planned to mount indiscriminate attacks on Pakistani soil.

The media report said that US has shared some of the information culled out from the documents with friendly spy services like those with Britain, but it was for the first time that the CIA shared such information with Pakistan.

The US commando raid had considerably strained ties between Washington and Islamabad. The daring operation, which saw commandos fly deep into Pakistan onboard stealth helicopters, was carried out without informing Pakistan's military. Abbottabad is barely 180 km from capital Islamabad.

Al Qaeda had planned major attacks in Pakistan

First of all before 1947 there where never ever a terroristic attacks neither in the Punjab & Sindh/ Pathan area of now present Pakistan & Afghanistan, even up to 1960 not that on a high level, all muslim and other religions where living peacefull. Islam is from origin a very peacefull religion, the Saudian Arabian & South Asian Islam is known for it's modern toleration & no discrimination and support poor & underpriviliged people. All muslims followers & conservative muslim men have to put responsibility to Saudia Arabia Mekka, no one else. The other branches of Muslim religions comes from Sudan, Nigeria, Egypt that are in now Pakistan, who does not represent the religion coming from Suadia Arabia.

Osama Bin Laden has followed many years his religion in Sudan. Misquiding & misschieving people always get form the Punjab, Sindh & Pathan, raping innocent women & killing people. Why is AL Qaeda planning attacks in Pakistan & Afghansitan because they see those people are weak & soft hearthed towards anytype of Islam which they can not valid. That's not how Islam should
represented, go back please. Any simple person can see this.
